As we get older we start to notice that our once smooth, firm and supple skin is starting to not look so smooth, firm and supple.
Our skin’s natural defense mechanisms and collagen and elastin begin to break down once we reach our 30’s and suddenly we see all the small lines and wrinkles that weren’t there before. We see them on our forehead and around the eyes and mouth. We also see loss of high cheek definition, hollows under the eyes, the cheek fold become more prominent, our lips start to thin and jowls may form!
Collagen works hand-in-hand with elastin in supporting the body’s tissues. It gives body tissues form and provides firmness and strength, elastin gives theses same body tissues much need flexibility.
So when we hit that age where they start breaking down, it makes our skin more vulnerable to external factors such as sunlight and pollution, emotional strain and occasional sleeplessness. Bad habits, such as smoking and not using SPF protection, also affect how our skin ages.
How can the Australian Laser and Skin Clinic help?
We offer Dermal Fillers (Restylane Injections) and Wrinkle Reduction (Botox Injections) which are a safe and extremely effective way to turn back time that can last between 3-9months. Restylane Injections and Botox Injections are virtually pain free and take as little as 20 minutes to an hour to perform. Many people go straight back to normal daily life after a botox or restylane injection, although if a large area is treated it can take a few hours or even a day or two to recover.
Dermal Fillers (otherwise known as Restylane) work by plumping up the skin and make it firmer therefore plumping and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers can also provide hydration and we have a form of Restylane that can offer this . Restylane is the only Dermal Filler The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic use and is the safest, most effective dermal filler used today. Restylane is perfect to plump out areas of the face such as lips and cheeks that have lost their fullness and hydration.
Wrinkle Reduction is when Botox is injected into a particular area of the body relaxing the underlying muscles, causing the skin to smooth out. Botox Injections blocks the nerve signals that make muscles contract. The most popular Botox Injection treatments are forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet. As well as Wrinkle Reduction, Botox Injections can also been used for muscle spasms and excessive sweating
Botox Injections and Restylane Injections are both offered at The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic.
